So, here is the detailed analysis of the Indian squad for the 2022 West Indies T20I series.
1 Will Kohli quit or rest?
Even before the team selection, there are speculations that Kohli will not be given a place in the team for the West Indies tour. Many reports said that Kohli has sought rest after the England tour. Given his poor form, it would have been difficult for the selectors to include him in the squad, but Kohli could have recovered from a tough back injury ahead of the first ODI against England.
So it is safe to assume that Kohli has been rested. But the question is, if his injury is serious, why is he currently playing in the ODI series against England? Or did he ask for leave as mentioned earlier? Will know sometime.
2 Bumrah, Chahal resting
Jasprit Burman and Yuzvendra Chahal, who have been playing since the England and Ireland tours, are fast bowlers in test and white-ball formats and leggies in T20Is and ODIs. So both Bumrah and Chahal have taken a break in view of the workload ahead. Although the BCCI has not given any reason for not including them, we can assume that the word ‘drop’ will not be associated with the duo.
3 long ropes for Shreyas Iyer
The handsome right-handed batsman from Mumbai has been included in the West Indies T20I squad. But his recent form has been encouraging. The opposition have got a tadpole in their armor – a weakness against the short ball and they are pressing it. Shreyas had the highest scores in the limited overs series against South Africa at home – 36, 40, 14, 4, 0, 15, 19, 28. But the management has given him some more time to reach this match. In all forms of the past.
4 R Ashwin returns
The white ball series against England did not include an experienced white spinner. But by including Ashwin in the T20 squad for the series against the West Indies, the selectors have indicated that there is more in their plans for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in October. Ashwin’s latest T20I match was for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022, as he played a crucial role in taking his team to the final.
5 Where is Sanju Samson?
Ever since the West Indies squad was announced, fans have been wondering why Sanju Samson was not selected. Sanju scored a brilliant half-century in the only T20 match against Ireland last month. But he was dropped from the Indian team for the second and third T20Is against England and now the West Indies. So when will Sanju be able to act again? The same is likely to happen in the series against Zimbabwe next month. But Sanju deserved a good and consistent run.
